Pro-abortion Schakowsky to lead Dems on panel investigating Planned Parenthood

A member of Illinois Democrat delegation has been appointed to act as ranking member of a congressional committee to investigate Planned Parenthood. Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (IL-09) is leading the Democrats' effort.

Despite receiving over $11,000 in campaign contributions from the group she's investigating,  Schakowsky has not publicly declared a conflict of interest.
